So I was just chatting with my daughter about what she was planning to make for her science project (she’s studying inventors & inventions). She was describing a personalized weather machine she was seriously considering (biting off a bigger meatball than I would do!) and I asked her who would choose rain? She countered: think of the pairings – I want sun, you want rain, together: Rainbow! Touché: it’s “you’ve got your chocolate in my peanut butter” thinking. Better together.
Pondering how we would create such a thing, I stumbled upon the MOMA’s new exhibit Rain Room that begins May 12. While I doubt we will be busy at home tinkering with some GPS based weather contraption, (what I wouldn’t give today for some yesterday-like weather), we will definitely wait in line to check it out next week at the MOMA.
The room is designed by Random International, and it’s taking place in a lot next to the museum. Basically it’s pouring, but when it detects you, the rain opens up to let you by, giving you the feeling of ‘controlling the weather’. Sounds super fun!

I’m totally psyched to have Tannhauser in the house! These awesome grey and neon green clogs had me doing backflips when I first saw them. I remember having clogs as a kid – there is just something about the retro slip on that rocks & with the day glo detailing, well, we’re sold.
Dig em? Come in to see ‘if the shoe fits…’ These will start in the store before they hit our site, so either pop in or give us a buzz if you can’t live without! 212 608 4522 / Babesta 66 West Broadway NYC.
We’re super excited to welcome Nununu to the Babesta store! We love this brand with its bold stars and pops of neon. It’s perhaps the coolest layette I’ve found in a long time! The funky toddler styles, from tees and onesies to dresses and shrugs are amazing as well. Made in Israel. Shop Nununu here!
We are super excited to just get Mini Rodini’s spring/summer 13 collection in-store. We saw it first this past summer, when in Stockholm on a vacay and couldn’t get enough of the tassels, bows, animal prints, palm trees & parrots. Here’s a little sampling of our first delivery!
Online, you’ll be able to shop it here:http://www.babesta.com/Mini-Rodini/ but for now, it’s in store, until our website elves get it photographed and processed, so first dibs is at 66 West Broadway at Warren. 212 608 4522.
I've spent the last couple days hot footing it around NYIGF, checking out the latest & greatest from a lot of our favorite brands. I spent most of my time in Design & Baby and Child but was happy to catch a couple great finds from a section dubbed NY Newest.
From new twists on our fave funky backpacks to pattern mixing on porcelin plates here's a mashup of things that will be on our store shelves soon or simply inspired us!
Although our racks are almost bare, we still have some great stuff in each size left from Fall on sale! We are getting ready for spring of course, but boy the weather's not. Snap up some 'warm things' that will hold you over until the sun is shining toasty & bright. Some puffers, mittens, hats, hoodies & sweaters in sizes 0-12.
We're running our annual floor sample sale at Babesta Cribz, making way for new styles and models. We always try to rotate what we have on the floor once a year, so that we have the "space" to show as many differnent cribs, dressers and beds that we can. We know how important it is to be able to see them in person, touch them and really understand the scale and quality. It's great for us too to have our "in store" experience putting them together. Anyway, we have some great pieces and some favorable prices, so if you're in the market, now's the time! Babesta Cribz, 56 Warren Street, NYC 646 290 5508.
The endless cycle of fashion marches on, and as such, we have to clear our racks for Spring!

Sale threads from the likes of Mini Rodini, Anais & I, Bobo Choses, Rowdy Sprout, Munster Kids and BabyLady are in sizes 2-12.
